Banana Split Sunday - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Banana Split Sunday is here again :)

Last week's challenge was a sketch challenge. Thank you so much for playing along with us and sharing your fabulous creativity!! Our randomly drawn winner is:

# 2 Gloria M.!

Way to go Gloria - congratulations! Please send me your address and your choice of one of the 2RedBananas exclusive July releases and I will get your package out to you. Thanks so much for playing along in our challenge.
This week's challenge is called "Reduce, Recycle and Reuse". I don't know about you, but I try really hard to do what is within my power to conserve. I love taking my own bags to stores and simple things like that. Within my scrapping space, I really don't like to throw things away, so re-using is good for me :) You can use anything that goes along with this theme for your project.

Here are some cards by the design team:




Your turn to play along. Create something based on "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle".

Please link your creation to this post using Mr. Linky. Please link directly to your creation and mention the 2RedBananas challenge in your details. When uploading to SCS or PCP use the keyword, 2RedBananas. Thanks so much!

Have a wonderful day!


  1. Hey, Jeanette! Fortunately, my card fits your theme this week, too, so I'll enter it here. :) The patterned paper triangles came from work and have been in my scraps drawer forever waiting for just the right project. The bling is a half-pkg brought home to recycle as well. Now to find a use for the third of those triangles. ;) Stamps are new Hero Arts Clings. Hope you like it!

  3. Hello ladies! What fabulous DT card - this is my kind of challenge - I LOVE to reuse and is my card:
    Thanks for having me!!! God bless you!

  4. I love this challenge, hope my box works for this. I love to reduce, recycle, but I am not as big about reusing except this post.

  5. Oops - I did it again - my first Mr linky item is the wrong one. My fingers go too fast and I guess I hit enter rather than delete the old item. I will add the right card next. Mine is also a Magnolia and Pile it on challenge.
    My re-use is the button and the butterflies. I really like using junk mail and cs scraps for that tiny butterfly punch.
    Thanks for the challenge and examples.
    my card is in my scs gallery:
